Removal of Malachite Green from aqueous solution is carried out using carbonized material prepared from seeds of Polyalthia longifolia commonly called as Ashoka. Batch adsorption study has been carried out to investigate the effect of various parameters such as, amount of biosorbent, concentration and time, temperature and pH. It is observed that the dye removal efficiency and adsorption capacity depends upon amount of biosorbent, time of agitation and concentration, temperature, pH of solution. Equilibrium data is evaluated using Freundlich and Langmuir adsorption isotherms.
